And now my real Christmas tree.

A Douglas fir, retro globe lights from Target like these, ornaments I've collected my entire life, red velveteen ric rac, candy canes, and a Winnie-the-Pooh angel treetopper.  It's crazy but it's personal and lots of fun to look at.  It makes me smile every single year.

Vintage ceramic Christmas tree.

I bought this a few weeks ago at the Livington Antique Outlet in Howell, Michigan .  I have wanted one of these for years- they are retro and it seems every grandma has one.  This one is especially fun- it's got a a silver glitter overspray, and instead of lightbulbs this one has sweet little birds.  My brother told me I deserved it....and I am so glad I snagged it up.
